This detached, c 1,300 sq ft four-bed home is new to market with Lisney, who guide at €435,000, with west facing back garden and ready extension potential, subject to planning approval.

There’s only a dozen homes in this section of Heatherton off the back Douglas Road, and a larger related development called Heatherton Park can be reached separately, via Greenhills; most of the dozen here are semis, so this detached offer at the end of the short cul de sac niche should draw interest (another detached nearby has recently been up to let, at €1,500 a month.)

No 12’s in good overall condition, with one en suite, plus main family bathroom and guest loo downstairs and it has two interlinked reception rooms, one front with bay window, one back with patio/garden access, plus there’s a kitchen/diner about 18’ deep, and garden shed just outside.

Douglas village is about a mile away, and the city centre is less than a mile and a half, and it’s also easily reached of the link/ring road network, with schools and sport amenities in the vicinity, plus a new civic park’s on the way.

VERDICT: Suburban convenience
